The SNES Classic Releases Tomorrow and How Can You Get One

SNES Classic Edition

The NES Classic immediately sold out at every retailer, and jump-started what appears to be a classic system reboot campaign being initiated by Nintendo. Reviews have been nearly universally positive for the small console, which is not surprising, so a lot of folks will probably also be in the market for accessories - like this new wireless SNES-inspired retro gamepad from 8bitdo.

You're also going to get two wired retro Super NES controllers - so, who fancies some late night Mario Kart action?

Gamestop - Gamestop was also only doing walk-ins for the SNES Classic at open, however, they do have a few pricey bundles available for the system as well. On an SNES Classic Controller, the Y button can double as B, and X can double as A. The same setup applies if you're playing with a Wii Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro hooked up to your NES Classic.

Earlier this year, there were concerns that Nintendo has learned nothing from the launch of the NES Classic, which was a highly sought-after console with not anywhere close to enough units available for consumers.

The SNES Classic is finally out in stores, featuring over 20 classic games from the system, including the never before released Star Fox 2.

Construction begins on eight prototypes for wall along the US-Mexico border
Tuesday's groundbreaking is Trump's most tangible step yet toward making good on his signature campaign promise to build the wall. For many, the construction of these prototypes is nothing more than political banter.

None of this is particularly surprising-the NES Classic was infamously super easy to hack, and because Nintendo doesn't seem to learn from the past, the SNES Classic uses the same internal hardware, allowing for the same exploits to be applied to it.

A report on Polygon read, "Today's pattern seems clear: While the online pre-order meltdown was stressful, frustrating and seemed nearly actively hostile, the retail experience was anything but".

The console costs £70 and you can find it here.

So even if you end up getting the SNES Classic from a scalper on eBay for $250, it's still a bargain compared with what you'd pay if you tracked down the original console and all these games individually. If you are more interested in the games than the trappings, then take a close look at the list of games.

More than any other feature, the Virtual Console gets brought up as the one thing sorely missing from the Switch.
